Hi Nelson!

We probably won't be able to change to TWiki unless
we run it ourselves. The current wiki is shared by many
projects and things and is supported by our system staff.
Given our insane schedule, mediawiki is the easiest way
to go.  TWiki sounds very cool (just googled it) - perhaps
we will switch over to it in the future.  For now we don't
have extra cycles to run/support it...

Thanks for the suggestion.
